Raincoast has a track record with big ideas. In a move that garnered worldwide attention, we purchased an exclusive 24,700 km2 hunting license for $1.3 million in 2005. Our purchase ended commercial trophy hunting over this huge region.
Grizzlies, wolves, and black bears were no longer targets for commercial trophy hunters throughout much of British Columbia’s central coast. We now have an agreement for a second hunting tenure in the heart of the Spirit Bear Territory.

Become a Raincoaster
Giving to Raincoast enables you to protect what you love most.
For 25 years, Raincoast has been furthering biodiversity conservation in BC. Thanks to your generous donations, among many other accomplishments, we have been able to end commercial trophy hunting of large carnivores in over 38,000 square kilometers of the Great Bear Rainforest, begin acquiring forest land in order to protect threatened Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystems, aid recovery of endangered Southern Resident killer whales by restoring Chinook salmon habitat, and establish a university research lab dedicated to applied conservation science. Strong partnerships are integral to our success.
Our efforts need to be maintained and advanced, now more than ever. As the biodiversity and climate crises collide, your support allows us to continue to make tangible conservation gains.
Biodiversity protection is the most important gift we can give the next generation. Join us as a Raincoaster today!
